The next few years

  1. Paleotempestology of the Gulf of Mexico margin. My goal is to trace major storms back in time for a few thousand years based mostly on sedimentology, paleontology, and radiometric dating.
  2. Climate change during the past two thousand years as concerns Antigua. Data from cores taken near the archeology site at Indian Creek.
